This he did by turning the rivers Alpheus and Peneus through them.
Daphne, daughter of the river Peneus, flying from Apollo, was turned into the laurel.
Peneus heard her voice and instantly her feet became fastened in the soil like roots.
The mud of the Peneus is of a light color, for which reason Homer gives it the epithet of silvery.
He set about turning the course of Alpheus and Peneus, rivers of Whitehall, and he sent their waters rushing through the stable.
He became enamored of Daphne, daughter of the river Peneus of Thessaly.
He then marched to Atrax, which is about ten miles from Larissa, on the river Peneus.
Both the rivers, Alpheus and Peneus, would hardly suffice for the process.
Proceeding thence, when he came within about three miles of Tripolis, (they call the place Scæa,) he encamped on the river Peneus.
With trembling limbs Daphne sought the river, the home of her father, Peneus.
